Flashback to Tony getting off the bus, taking a bite of the candy bar, making an "ew" face, and spitting out the bite and chucking the wrapper. Three kids walking behind him start harassing him for littering, so he takes off running and the other kids give chase, and just then a bunch of state trooper cars pull up on the sidewalk in front of all of them. The other kids scatter; Tony instinctively puts his hands up, then drops them and wanders closer to Ride Land to see the commotion as the cops dash inside. A guy in a red shirt runs out of the funhouse, and there's lots of "stop or I'll shoot" shouting, and the cops shoot the guy and wound him. Women scream and uniforms swarm around the guy as Adult Tony VOs, "His name was Kiki Sasso, my father's cousin on his mother's side. Got out of Vietnam on account of the cops blew his kneecap off." Then Li'l Tony looks over to see his father and Junior coming out of the funhouse in cuffs, and Janice comes running over, shrieking, "Daddy! Daddy!" and Johnny comforts her as uniforms lead her and some other kids away. Tony watches the cops lead away more men, a rack of fur coats, and a clown, and as the procession passes the crowd that has gathered, someone in the crowd calls out, "That's Johnny Boy Soprano," and all the guys get stuffed into the paddywagon. The music from the carousel gets louder and louder; Tony looks sick.
Fade back to Melfi's office. "He was usin' my sister Janice as a front. All the guys brought their daughters, so that when they did their business it looked sweet and innocent." "That must have been devastating," Melfi says. "Aw, turned out it was no big deal," Tony says, downplaying it, but Melfi doesn't buy it: "To see your father handcuffed, being led away by the police?" Tony admits that, at the time, "I thought my head was gonna explode...he looked...helpless. But when I got home, my mother had a different perspective, which made me feel better," but he says this last part acidly. "So in her pain, she reached out to you," Melfi says encouragingly. Irony alert! Tony snorts, "That's one way to put it."
Flashback of Li'l Tony coming home after dark. Livia sits on the plastic-sheeted couch, smoking, and she tells Tony triumphantly that "your father may not be home for dinner tonight." "I know," Tony says glumly. She turns to look at him: "What do you know?" "I saw 'im gettin' arrested," Tony tells her. "What did he do?" "He didn't do anything," Livia shouts. "They just pick on the Italians!"
